Comment: Blood For the Blood God! (Score 1) 64

And by 'Blood', I of course mean Money. ;) Those minis were not cheap. But Adeptus Titanicus was like a watered down Battletech, but in a good way. You spent more time playing and less time nose deep in rule books. And the mythos! They went deep and wide. A few years ago I was playing Blood Bowl online (soo much easier when the computer does the math for you) and last summer I got the Space Hulk video game for a song on steam (it's literally just the board game in your computer. Terrible video game, but awesome online game simulator).

I hope they stick around for a while longer.

Fiend Folio was the dumbest. Some of the monsters were really lame, and the nicer ones were mostly inclusions by TSR US, such as the Nycadaemon which had already appeared in D3 (Vault of the Drow). I have a close to 30 year continuity on my 1ed campaign and I rarely touch the Fiend Folio.

I personally have never killed anything larger than a bug in my life; I suspect a lot of other people haven't either. I've never had to, because there have always been other people who are willing to do those unpleasant tasks for me, in exchange for modest amounts of money.

You're safe; I'm sure in our dystopian zombie future, the phones will still need sanitizing.

Obama can't countermand the order? Are you really saying that? Bush was trying to pressure the Iraqis into a SOFA agreement. Closer to the actual withdrawal date, a smarter strategy is required.

So, the civilian uprising that happened when we left was better than the one that the Shia would have stage-managed?

If you had any experience with fighting in Iraq, you'd realize that if anything is going to be done about ISIS, it'll have to be a foreign power doing it. The Iraqi forces are ineffectual - poorly led and lacking in ideology and resolve compared to their opponents. The Syrians had the same problem, aside from the Alawite core that is loyal to Assad. Note the sectional relationship - worth far more in that area of the world than any contrived "nationality". ISIS is a catch-22. Either you fix it from outside or acknowledge that a Caliphate is in the cards.
